Jaeger LeCoultre Polaris Chronograph

I picked up my first Jaeger LeCoultre watch last Friday. It's a Polaris Chronograph REF. 9028170. I was undecided as to a blue dial or black but in the end decided on the black as the blue just wasn't appealing to my preference. (Each to their own.) The quality of the watch is outstanding and I'd even say, much better than my Rolex 116520.

I like that a lot. I had a blue non-chrono version which I sold and now wish I hadn't. I want another one but, like you, when I do pick one up again I think it will be the black version. Really nice.

Yes, it was a hard decision to make between the black or the blue but I thought the black wouldn't date.

Yes, I'm trying to decide if a Reverso Duoface will be next.
